Swallow big files without choking

I found out about a great new tool in an unexpected way this week. I was contacted by Martin to compare notes on our exploration of Beyond Bullet Points as a way of raising the bar on our presentations, and ended up needing to exchange some large files.

It's easy - you go to the YouSendIt home page, enter the recipient's address, upload your files, and press Send. The file is stored on their servers, and your recipient receives an email-based "claim check" which contains a link where they can retrieve the file you sent. Sweet!
